If it weren't for all that useless trivia, maybe I could figure out how to burn discs.
For the record, I burned the folder of 5 mpg4 files onto a CD and a DVD-R. Results: neither works on the dedicated DVD player in my room, the DVD-R will not play in my Dell laptop but the CD files do play on my Dell through Quicktime but not Windows Media Player.

OK, I got home and started playing around. I can import mpeg 4 files if they are not too long. 4 of the 5 files are too long but the machine is telling me I can use QT Pro (which I have) to cut them up. Probably not tonight but some time this week, I will get to work on it.
Only 3 more Mondays in this school year, one I will be glad to see behind me. My science department is losing 3 of 21 teachers. This is not a fun time of the year.
Once summer starts, I should have plenty of time to work on projects like this as well as learning how to use the new telescope and digital imager.
If you want to edit the movies use iMovie, or QT Pro, then use iDVD to make a standard DVD out of the movies to play in any DVD player. You can put them all on one DVD and each will have its own little button in a menu, you choose a theme for the background, menus, music that plays during the menu, etc. Just like a real DVD. You can have it auto play on insert.
You'll figure it out, but a couple of tips I can give to make the learning easier, use the Save as Disc Image feature when you're experimenting instead of burning a disc, and use small clips to save time. You can mount the finished .img on the computer and play it in DVD Player to preview what it will look like rather than wasting DVD's.
